    Well, like the article said, he's being doubled and tripled team almost every possession, not to mention defenders are being extra physical with him.

    The Rockets beat the Shanghai Sharks by 70 points in the preseason while James Harden was taking one leg three pointers
    Their league is scrub

    Jerry got to be roasted longer to gain that extra crispy exterior.

    yes, we’ve talked about that a lot. No doubt Lin fell short when he had the chance there. A rational reason is that his injury finally caught up with him...rational because statistically that stretch was significantly below his career averages in every category, so obviously it was the exception and not the rule about his abilities.

    As I’ve said many times before...no question his injury affected his game. Prior to his injury, Lin was a quality NBA PG. the injury, which has ended the career of many NBA players in the past, is the most likely reason for the significant drop in productivity he had last season.

    thank you for the perfectly rational opinion of Lin. I can agree with most of it.

    It's a scrub league where people go to make money and continue playing basketball when they have been rejected elsewhere.

    The ones that are insecure and hurt try to turn it into some greater goal or divine purpose lol.

    The truth is that if you are playing there then you are a scrub...

    ... Which Airemy always has been.

    Which is why he has worn out his welcome with several NBA teams and eventually the league.

    Your marketing and "race appeal" can take you only so far. In the end you have to produce on the court, which he failed to do.

    Not to mention the extra baggage he brought with him whereever he went with his whining, insecurity, and his passive aggressive attitude. Teams and players got tired of this mental midget fast which is why he wouldn't last long anywhere he landed.

    Airemy was too much of a scrub with not much to offer on the basketball court, or else he would still be in the NBA.

    Are the Pecking Ducks considered a top Chinese team?

    Don’t forget he uses the church and Jesus like Jerry Falwell or Benny Hinn
    As a shield he hides behind when things don’t go his way

    anyone every go to church and have the congregation hear that you should pray that some millionaire shoot better?
    The whole point he got millions is to shoot better
    That’s his job

    his fans like are beyond fixable
    They are now ignoring what Lin says and pretending to know what he’s thinking
